More on this topic

The Volkswagen brand is completely realigning with its TRANSFORM 2025+ strategy. Step-by-step, the brand is evolving into a leading, profitable volume manufacturer and is also seeking to play a leading role in the new world of automobility. Our target is to sell about one million electric cars per year by 2025 and to be the market leader in e-mobility.
The history of the Volkswagen brand began with the “Käfer”; development work on this Nazi prestige project began in 1934. On May 28, 1937, the “Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH“ (Company for the Preparation of the German Volkswagen Ltd.) was formally established. The name was changed to “Volkswagenwerk GmbH” in 1938, and the company built its main plant in what has become Wolfsburg. However, the outbreak of war and integration in the arms industry prevented mass production of the Volkswagen (“people’s car”) – instead, military vehicles and other armaments were produced using forced labor.
